Footwear Model Types

Notorious Lift currently produces 4 different models of footwear. While each model is designed to excel at providing you optimal grip, ground feel, and comfort during your lifts, each has different features that will appeal to different lifters. This short guide is designed to help you determine which model is right for you.

The Original deadlift slipper

Notorious Lifters Gen 2

This is the second iteration of our original deadlift slipper -- the one that started it all.

NLG2 features an ultra-thin, flexible and grippy sole that gets you as close as possible to the floor and maximizes ground sensory feedback. It is our most minimal, barefoot-feeling slipper designed to offer a good balance between minimalism, comfort, and grip.

Great for both conventional and sumo deadlifts, and for those looking for the most minimal and comfortable slipper available.

Make it even more grippy

Sumo Sole Gen 1

SSG1 was created in response to our community's demands for a deadlift slipper with even greater traction and grip compared to our original slipper, the Notorious Lifters.

It features our aggressive #noslipgrip traction pattern and a high side lateral wall to prevent spillage in sumo deadlifts. These two features combine with our dual straps to provide a locked in, ultra grippy slipper unlike any other product on the market. The sole is slightly thicker than the Notorious Lifters, but still extremely thin.

This model is very popular for those looking for the absolute best in grip and lateral support, such as wide sumo pullers.

Additional support

Sumo Sole Gen 2

SSG2 features the same great #noslipgrip sole used in our SSG1, but is constructed using our new custom-milled Durawoven™ upper, which gives the slipper a shoe-like feel.

This model features an internal heel cup for added stability and support over the SSG1.

SSG2 is great for those who are looking for the absolute best grip and side-wall support, just like the SSG1, but with added support more similar to a shoe, rather than a slipper.

take the best parts and combine them

Sumo Sole Gen 2.5

SSG2.5 was rebuilt from the ground up to combine the best aspects of our Notorious Lifters and our Sumo Sole Gen 1.

The new Fortis™ sole pairs the ultra-thinness of the NLG2 with the SSG1's brawny side lateral wall. The result is a slipper that is comfortable to wear for the duration of the workout, but still provides great grip and groundfeel.

It also features our brand new lightweight and breathable AdvanKnit™ upper that contours to your feet for a tight feel and proper lockdown.

This model is great for those who want plenty of lateral support, without sacrificing the feeling of a minimal ultra-thin slipper.
